Transportation Performance Management

 

Two Performance Management Final Rules Take Effect

On May 20, 2017, the FHWA final rulemaking on national performance measures took effect, with the exception of certain portions of the rule pertaining to the measure on the percent change in CO2 emissions from 2017, generated by on-road mobile sources on the NHS (the GHG measure). While the published rule includes a GHG measure, the effective date of the portions of the final rule pertaining to that measure has been delayed indefinitely. The FHWA will be publishing a NPRM in the Federal Register pertaining to this measure.

This final rule, published in the Federal Register on January 18, 2017 and effective on May 20, 2017 (except for portions related to the GHG measure), sets forth measures that State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) and Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) will use to report on the following characteristics within their jurisdiction:

  • the performance of the Interstate and non-Interstate National Highway System (NHS) to carry out the National Highway Performance Program (NHPP);
  • freight movement on the Interstate system; and
  • traffic congestion and on-road mobile source emissions for the purpose of carrying out the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) Program.

Also on May 20, 2017, the FHWA's final rule on pavement and bridge condition performance measures to address new requirements established by MAP-21 and the FAST Act will take effect.

This Pavement and Bridge Condition Performance Measures final rule, published in the Federal Register on January 18, 2017, establishes measures for State DOTs to carry out the NHPP and to assess the condition of pavements on the non-Interstate NHS; pavements on the Interstate System; and bridges carrying the NHS, including on- and off-ramps connected to the NHS.

The Final Rule and NPRM webinars information can be found on the Presentations and Webinars page.
